The Speeches of Sallust's Histories and the Legacy of Sulla
The fragments and speeches of Sallust's Histories offer a late republican window into the events of the 70s and insight into immediately post-Sullan political life. Although Sallust wrote the speeches for a triumviral audience, he also preserved aspects of earlier political debate, and the speeches may be used with caution to understand politics in the politically charged environment of the 70s. In this environment, even those seeking to uphold Sullan policies hesitated to defend the dictator himself, and political figures of all loyalties manipulated public hatred of Sulla, deep divisions within the senate, and universal fear of renewed civil war.
